Acceptance


By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond the winning. When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.~ Lao Tzu

I strive to strike a balance between the me who is impatient, uncombed, unsettling, and the more presentable me who plays well with others. If I lean too far toward the former, I can get slovenly and depressed. If I go overboard with trying to fit in and be popular, I rebel on a deeply visceral level, and overdo it in one way or another.

I still feel like the engine hasn’t caught yet – I periodically travel from one of these versions of me to another. I would love to figure out how to accept both aspects of me and feel more comfortable in my own skin.
